First female Dean of Lincoln vows to make cathedral welcome place for all faiths

From The UK.

People came from far and wide to witness the installation of the first female Dean of Lincoln at the city’s iconic cathedral.

Christine Wilson, 58, the previous Archdeacon of Chesterfield since 2010, was installed as the 84th Dean of Lincoln at a service in the cathedral on October 22.

She vowed to make the cathedral a welcoming place for people of all faiths, and used her first sermon to preach about how iconic the building is and what it stands for in the wider community.

Opening with ‘Sing joyfully unto God’ by William Byrd, the congregation were jubilant in the nave of the historic building.

The entrance of the procession brought the College of Canons, other clergy from the diocese and dignitaries into their seats.
